Qualified C&D Recycling Facilities

What is the Qualified Facility Program?

City code requires that recyclable material from jobsites in Seattle must be sent to a Qualified Facility, which includes Source Separated Recycling Facilities and mixed waste recycling facilities. SPU Director's Rule SW-620 describes the general and specific facility requirements for being classified as a Qualified Facility. The rule applies to:

  • Source-separated recyclers
  • Mixed-waste recycling facilities

A list of source-separated recyclers is available at King County's What do I do with...? website.

Qualified Facilities Requirements

Seattle Municipal Code 21.36.089 directs Seattle Public Utilities (SPU) to set up criteria to identify Qualified Receiving and Recycling Facilities for recovering targeted construction materials for recycling and beneficial use. A facility that is Seattle Qualified and King County Designated must:

  • comply with State and local permitting requirements, including maintaining a Solid Waste Permit from the Health Department
  • report monthly to the City on incoming and outgoing construction materials for reuse, recycling, beneficial use and disposal, and
  • meet performance standards for recovering banned materials from residuals bound for landfill disposal.

SPU Director's Rule SW-620 describes the general and specific facility requirements for being classified as a Qualified Facility and references the below materials:
